Eliminating Operational Disruptions Leveraging Machine Learning
Over the past decade several manufacturing companies have implemented Reliability Centered Maintenance (RCM) programs and moved from a more reactive maintenance program to a reliability centered approach to maintenance where the majority of maintenance is planned, saving them significant costs and improving production. There is still more production disruption to eliminate from the operation and costs to be saved. Having driven an RCM approach through several companies, the presenter will outline the foundation of the RCM programs that these companies have deployed and from which they believe they can launch to the next level – RxM and further digital transformation to reach higher levels of operational excellence. The presentation will cover the present challenges faced and the business opportunity for taking steps in the direction of predictive maintenance and operational analytics. This presentation will cover the journey of several companies in the form of case studies together with lessons learned and next steps.
